|John Terpstra, Skin Boat, Art Waves #43|
John Terpstra’s book-length essays about geography & belonging, and about the all too brief lives of his brothers-in-law have given him a following even larger than that he has won with his poetry. When he released another of his eclectic explorations, Skin Boat: Acts of Faith and Other Navigations, Art Waves invited him to come aboard and share his secrets of chart and compass.
